Review quote

Worth reading. -- Lynn Baxter, Greenwich University H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online, June 2009 Intercountry Adoptees Tell Their Stories includes fascinating interviews with adult African-American, Asian, Hispanic and white interracial adoptees born in many parts of the world including the U.S. The in-depth interviews speak for themselves revealing how being interracially adopted has effected these individual's perceptions of themselves as men and women, how they see their adopted and birth families, and how their multi-racial experiences coincides within a world often defined in racial terms. For a family thinking about interracial adoption, this is a 'must read.' -- Howard Altstein, University of Maryland School of Social Workshow more
